are in a good position to talk bow size of government and cutting back a lot of the pelosi, reid, and obama spending binge. neil: you know, i look at the numbers, and, jonas, there's just no way you can get there alone on taxes, that hark to the fact that the the "wall street journal" had tax all their money, $1.3 trillion, does not address the deficit just this year. so you have to get more money from other folks; right? >> no question taxes did not go up enough to settle the budget, the hole of the major spending cuts. obama talks about the clinton years, but taxes were higher for lower income, families, child credits were not there, and lower rates. what's the problem is it did not apply to people and added layers of complexity to an already ridiculously complex tax code. as an investment advisers you have to deal with rates, created new ones nowings baa there's an additional 3.6, and if you're at this income, there's .9%, and you're creating many more bracts, not -- brackets. there's rates from 0, 5, 15, i think there's a 23.9 all for different levels, and then types of income. buying g
. and thank you so much for joining us. lots you're going to want to talk about today with president obama challenging the nra and gun nuts by saying c'mon it's time to act. we must act. we'll be judged on whether or not we do. pardon me. and laying forth a whole series of common sense measures. both executive action and congressional action necessary to deal with the problem of gun violence in this country. very powerful ceremony. i was there yesterday. tweeted some photos out from the white house. hope you saw them. if you follow us on twitter you certainly did. if not join us on twitter at bpshow. good place to send your comments today or on facebook at of course, you can still do things the old-fashioned way and give us a call at 1-866-55-press. that is our toll free number. we've got situation here with the gun control measures in washington d.c. still continuing debate about the debt ceiling and whether or not this is going to be another fiscal armageddon here in our nation's capital. everybody gearing up for the big inauguration ceremonies this weekend. t
. the other end of it from a policy standpoint is president obama talking about more money for psychiatric services for specifically young people to try to figure out an early age prone to violent behavior. i guess my two questions about that, i wonder, first of all, is this going to necessitate a change in the law about doctor/patient confidentiality? if a red flag, you know, is raised, are we going to need to change the law so the doctor is able to alert the authorities and act on the information? flip side of that is if that's the case and the doctor's empowered to do that, do you think that might cause young people to clam up and not be as forthcoming as we need them to be? >> great questions, steve. i think the answer to the first thing is, yes. you're seeing a proposal in colorado not getting enough attention on the mental health side and proposed a change in the legal standard where now doctors who previously were supposed to inform the authorities if there was some imminent risk to, you know, of harm to others, now will have a slightly, you know, a less stringent standard of substa
about the anti-obesity bush and michelle obama talked about her daughter's bmi being too high. the problem is, the president at the beginning had a goal of keeping kids out of politics, that's a laudable goal and worthy goal. i think he's right about that. the problem is the president when his back was up against the wall issue after issue used references to his other children and as so many other politicians did, use children period and he did that today. the n.r.a. point is about it's a double standard. the obama daughters get protection, of course they get protection, that's not revealing any substantive information, but why shouldn't other families get the same type of protection for their children, not secret service people, but gun protection or self-defense. i think that's the point they were trying to make. >> any objection for the presidents and republicans and democrats have been used for photo opes and the children, and i've seen the president stand up with soldiers, injured soldiers. >> the children of injured soldiers i know bush has probably done that as well, bu
. >> i have some sense of taste. some. and when i hear these guys talking about the obama girls being food for discussion here, let's talk about their safety. but then i'm talking about this guy saying the president reminds me of sadham hussein. there he is. and we were all, oh, my god, that kid is scared to death of this guy. >> it's not, by in stretch, the sickest thing he did. he basically accused them of murdering people merely to further his assault gun ban. >> explain how that would work. i know a lot of gun people, including my brother, bruce. but here's the question. >> you don't want to follow that. >> how do you organize branch davidian. they organized the raid, but to come up with the idea he justified the raids because he wanted to come out with gun control. it wasn't gun control. >> he said the president wanted them dead because they liked they're guns. >> what about militia members after those two guys were executed? the guys who blew up the oklahoma city. they're dead. and then he celebrates the fact that we've got militias. >> and your point is? i mean, that's who he i

. >> what do you make of what obama said in the proposal -- we were talking about background checks, but he also says he wants to introduce a ban on military-style assault weapons. >> i find that in some ways a little hypocritical, considering president obama had a program called fast and furious that walked across the border thousands of so-called assault rifles, millions of rounds of ammunition, and an unbelievable amount of high-capacity magazines that have been used by violent criminals of drug cartels. >> why then do americans in the united states need these weapons? >> they have also killed hundreds of civilians, including women and children. why doesn't he try to find those guns and get them back -- it is his administration who put them out on the street. >> why is it that americans currently -- around 300 million guns in private hands in the united states. why then do americans need some any guns? >> we have a lot people. a lot of people like to have guns for different purposes. a hand gun for self-defense, a rifle for target shooting, a shotgun for skeet shooting. we fought a roll
of the security of israel's citizens. >> despite talk of a rift between president obama and prime minister netanyahu, obama has yet to take any action on one of the most controversial settlement expansions by the israeli government in years. israel is now expanding the e1 settlement after objections were raised under george w. bush. the zone is particularly sensitive because it would completely bisect the west bank, dashing with a remote hopes remain for two-state solution. the obama administration has refused to cut aid or even offer criticism, limiting its reaction to calling the expansion "counterproductive." new details have been revealed on the obama administration's weapon sales to bahrain after -- during the ruling monarchy's ongoing crackdown on opposition protesters. the website propublica reports the u.s. has sold weaponry including ammunition, combat vehicle parts, communications equipment, blackhawk helicopters, and an undisclosed missile system to bahrain since the protests began nearly two years ago. it is unclear if all the purchases were delivered, but they provide a key wi

? he's also talking about obama is not a king. well, if he's not a king, then you could nullify him. if he is a king, trying to be a king, then you can't nullify what a king is trying to do. what the previous gop name was trying to be a king. you can't have it both ways, one day say he's not leading us and the next day he's trying to be a king. what he put forward is very reasonable. he's not trying to take away everyone's guns. he's not trampling the second amendment. he's doing something very responsible that allows law-abiding, responsible gun owners to have their guns and protect themselves in their homes and create more safety for america. and he's done something that isn't worried about the political wins. he's doing what he thinks is right, what is the best policy. and i'm actually proud to see him stand up for what he thinks is the best policy and say we're not going to do the assault weapons ban. push them as far as you can. you know, the pro-gun right is lost to the democrats. so don't worry about them. we can still win elections without them. >> well, david, five states w

"the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi
sailors coming anytime soon. but we have to move on to the story that everybody is talking about. president obama signing 23 separate executive actions on gun violence today. and those actions could have a huge impact on the firearms industry. among other things, the president called for mandatory background checks for all gun sales and a ban on military assault style weapons and high-capacity magazines. which would make the weapon on the top legal and the weapon on the bottom illegal. even though they are essentially the same gun that fires the same ammunition. this topic is obviously controversial and we will explore every option of it with the money power panel. the owner of a gun range in louisville, kansas, and owner of young democrats of america. and a gun enthusiast from new jersey who uses the very type of firearms caught in the midst of this firearms debate. i will start with you, emily. a series of statistics in reference to what the president said in the press conference. conference. he said the executive orders that his proposals are designed to lower gun violence in

't use that in talking to a reporter because the humor that was done on the barack obama campaign's tumbler and all of those things, i loved it. >> but it could be off message. you go through these intense campaign, you've got thousands of e-mails then you unplugged no internet for a week. what did youern from that experience, harper? >> i set out -- i realized i was addicted to e-mail. i think we all tra v that. i was at dinner with my wife and i was like "just a second." >> what are you talking about? i don't know what you mean! >> so i realized that we went from getting thousands of e-mails to suddenly like ten and it was a little bit -- i think there's a lot of ego in technology and so it's a little bit like i was like aren't i important? what happened? what happened? >> so you decided to opt out? >> i wanted to just put a distance between that part of my life and what was coming up next because i figured it's going to ramp up again but i wanted to have this tiny bit of time where i could just read. >> tell our viewers what was the best thing you read when you unplugged? >> i

is the president talking about this matter earlier today. >> obama: as soon as i'm finished speaking here, i will sit at that desk and sign a directive giving schools hubble health community tools they need to help reduce gun violence. as important as these steps are they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a reel and lasting real and lasting difference congress, too must act, and i'm calling on congress to pass very specific proposals right away. first its time for congress to require an universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. second, congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. finally congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault o
, and republicans are already talking about impreaching president obama. well, that's what you get for being . . . well president obama. texas congressman steve stockman started team gop's call for imteachment and florida freshman trey radel signed on. >> like you mention, he's putting out all of these executive orders and is overstepping his bounds. if that continues could that build up to make a case for impeachment. >> all options should be on the table. ask yourself what are you going to do when a republican gets in that you may not agree and like very much, and he is doing the same thing? >> jennifer: if the president's pursuit of an issue like gun safety that the vast majority of americans support is grounds for impeachment, imagine what kind of trouble he would get in if he actually fixed the economy or brought about world peace. alan grayson is here and welcome back inside "the war room" and welcome back to congress. i know i'm a little late saying it, but welcome back. >> thanks i gave a speech about that scenario if the participate brought about world peace, an

examples of barack obama, and put it up and i'll talk about later in the program. seven examples of barack obama using executive powers, obamacare, he used it on executive appointments, recess appointments, et cetera, and no congressional approval on certain things and now this, now he's bypassing congress. what do you make of that power grab by the president? >> well, first of all, there are 23 of these. some of them the question is why are we doing that. for example, he's got an order to finally nominate and alcohol tobacco and firearms director? really? and mr. president, you shall finally meet your statutory responsibilities of nominating a director. we're going to provide the relevant data for the background check. we need an eo to tell them to meet the current obligations and require federal law enforcement officers to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. why aren't we doing this already? part of it is why are we doing it and why do we have to do it? we're going to tell the centers for disease control to research the causes and preventions of gun violence. is gun violence
using emotion than he did talking about his actual plans themselves. an emotional president obama unveiled his plan in front of an audience that included parents of newtown victims. >> she dreamed of becoming a painter. chris, her father, gave me one of her paintings. and i hung it in my private study. and every time i look at that painting, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. for grace. >> the president outlined four major points. each one evoked memories of past mass shootings. >> we will make sure mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. >> reporter: this action makes it easier to share mental health records with authorities, a move that could have identified seung-hui cho as a threat before the virginia tech massacre. >> congress should restore a ban on military-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. >> reporter: the previous ban expired in 2004. the gun used in newtown, connecticut is the kind that would be banned. he wants a limit on ammunition that could hav

. obama spoke first. >> the president made it pretty clear when he talked to us, you know, "we're between you and the pitchforks, guys. and you need to just acknowledge that." >> the bankers have essentially made a decision that they're prepared to go along with what needs to be done to resolve this problem, to get the public back on the side of corporate america. >> narrator: but as the meeting progressed, to their astonishment, it became clear the president was in no mood for confrontation. >> what's interesting is that the next statements and the rest of the meeting essentially is obama skinning back as fast as he can on that pitchfork's punch. and he says right after that, "what we have, gentlemen, is a public relations disaster that's turning into a political disaster. and i'm here to help." >> i interpreted it as kind of a watershed time. banks are the catalyst to get us out of this morass that we're in. you can talk so long about the past, but at some point, you've got to look at the present and the future. and i thought that's what he was saying. >> narrator: the president had dec
that during the campaign and during the primary season, all the republicans talked about was repealing obama care. but yes michelle can be the get any sponsors of her bill? >> isn't that interesting? fewer and fewer people, it seems, by the week, by the month, are interested in repealing obama care because as it rolls out, more and more people are actually gaining the benefits. it had overwhelming public support and we polled in the blue dog districts, the more conservative districts. >> that is the bottom line. thanks for joining me tonight.

interesting piece in politico today talking about the breaking of the obama role. there was the breaking of the hastert rule. you say, a i will read to you your own words -- >> i love this part. >> this is the best sort of awkward, and also semi-embarrassing and charming part of the show. democrats have jokingly referred to what they call the obama rule enshrining the president's practice of not forcing legislative action on anything no matter how noble that can't pass both houses. he now appears willing to burn political capital by pressuring senate democrats to vote for a measure that is likely to die in the house. a symbolic gesture that sets the stage he hopes for more meaningful ones. i read that, and i thought am i depressed? you seem to suggest that there is failure built into these proposals, and that this is a -- >> this is something that the left has -- remember during the health care debate. obviously we talked about the public option. there has been a sense at various points that he backed off the tough fights because he knew he wasn't going to be able to turn a quick deal. t
